[[abstract]]The purpose of this study is to investigate the application of integrating information technology into music instruction, and discover its influence in the students’ learning performance and learning attitude through the practical teaching. The main purposes of this study are as follows： (1)to understand the importance of integrating information technology and music education.(2) to apply information technology to be an effective tool to assist and extend music instruction .(3) to evaluate the feasibility and difference between experimental and controlled classes.(4)to construct and provide a model study for integrating information technology on music instruction. The methodology of the study adopts quasi-experiment .Six Samples were randomly selected from the first-grade classes at Nan-Shan junior high school in Taipei, and equally divided into the experimental group and the controlled group. The experimental group accepted the integrating information technology in music teaching and the controlled group accepted the traditional music teaching. The research designed the ”music achievement test”, “music leaning experience questionnaire”, “Information Literacy questionnaire”, and “learning estimate questionnaire” to comprehend the process and effect between experimental and controlled classes. This study applied the composing software, the painting software, CAI, internet , Interactive multimedia teaching materials, and Microsoft office which includes Powerpoint, word, and Frontpage to design a model and strategy for integrating information technology into music instruction. The study will evaluate learning performance, the difference between the two groups and the feasibility through the literature review, practical teaching, music achievement test, questionnaire survey, and observation analysis. Furthermore, the research also provides some suggestions as a reference for integrating information technology on music instruction. The major conclusions of the research are as follows: 1.Using information technology into music instruction indeed improves students’ music learning motive and performance, and receives good responses from students. 2.The integrative multimedia teaching materials can reinforce the learning ability and effect. 3.Using the composing software can improve students’ comprehension, imagination and creation, and enhance the interest and skills of music composing, and make more confidence and achievement on music learning. 4.Using software and internet can be an effective tool to assist and extend music learning. 5.Using information technology into music instruction indeed improves students’ music understanding, computer abilities and skills. 6.Integrating information technology into music instruction can put into practice effectively and show a positive effect on students’ learning performance.
